Frog eyes

A glass frog, they are spectacular amphibians. Of enormous beauty. And the size of a thumbnail. This picture was taken in the gardens of the hotel where we were staying. One of the last nights of our trip I went out during a great storm to find frogs in a fountain in the gardens and I was fortunate to encounter this specimen.
